Those are facts. I don't understand why you can't face them, but there it is.
Also, where exactly are these statements from actual doctors that guaranteed Markov would be healthy this season? How did you come by this information? What doctor are you listening to?
What were our other options if not Markov? Wizniewski? I prefer an injured Markov...
PG worst mistake wasn't Markov, but thinking that Gill, Campoli, Emelin or Diaz could be good enough to play a top-4 role. And then trading for Kaberle. Our defense sucked on paper at the start of the season.
But again, you don't build a team through UFAs. And because of a few weak drafts, a few bad trades (McDonagh, SK, Latendresse, D'Agostini), some players not developping as we hoped (Eller, Palushaj, Weber) and of course injuries (without any depth players to fill in), we are where we are.
